  • Environmental movements and social networking sites in Bangladesh

    This paper aims to explore the current trend of environmental movements and its relationship with social networking sites (SNS) in Bangladesh, the most vulnerable country to climate change impacts in the world. SNS is increasingly being used in environmental movements in the disaster–prone country and it has a significant impact on activism. This study was undertaken on a recent protest against ...

  • GPS–based slope monitoring systems and their applications in transition mining from open–pit to underground

    Combining methods of open–pit and underground mining can yield maximum economic outcomes, while they may also cause large–scaled geological hazards, such as landslides. Failure to prevent landslides in mining areas could result in losses and damages to equipment, surrounding environments, and even human lives. In this paper, we report the application of global positioning system (GPS) for ...

  • IndustrySafe safety software and airport SMS case study

    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is proposing additional regulation that would require certified airports to develop and implement Safety Management Systems (SMS) for their entire airfield environment (including movement and non-movement areas) to improve safety at airports hosting air carrier operations. An SMS is a formalized approach to managing safety by developing an ...

  • Structural Monitoring Inside a Copper Mine

    CAS DataLoggers recently supplied the intelligent datalogging solution for the operators of a copper mine. For the safety of both miners and machinery, it was essential that any potentially dangerous situations were identified early by closely monitoring the mine’s entire structure to detect ground movement or subsidence around the mine which could make the structure become unstable. A ...

  • Systems of systems engineering: prospects and challenges for the emerging field

    System of systems engineering (SoSE) is a field that remains in the embryonic stages of development. The work presented in this volume provides a methodological approach, grounded in foundations of systems theory, to perform SoSE. However, further development of the field must be predicated on understanding critical distinctions emerging and bring focus to the challenges and prospects for further ...

  • The latest ground Gas monitoring innovations

    The latest Ground Gas monitoring innovations   The traditional methodology for ground gas monitoring has been ‘spot monitoring’ – taking event readings at various set times to predict the sub surface gas regime on both on Brownfield and Landfill sites.     This methodology is in general current practice under both the EU Landfill Directive ...

  • Restructuring of a civic authority responsible for environmental issues

    This research focused on the restructuring of a French local authority in charge of environmental management in a territory confronted with five major natural hazards: floods, forests fires, earthquakes, avalanches and ground movement. A recent analysis of developments in both public and private sectors has indicated the emergence of post-bureaucratic organisations. How do public organisations ...

  • Social resistance to biotechnology: attempts to create a Genetically Modified-free territory in Brazil

    This paper looks at the attempt to create a territory free of transgenic crops in the state of Rio Grande do Sul (RS) Although the state government had legal grounds under federal law and court decisions that banned these crops in Brazil, resistance by groups representing local farmers managed to disseminate the planting of transgenic soybeans in the state. The reasons for the government's ...

  • Evaluating truck turn time in grounded operations using simulation

    This paper presents in detail techniques for developing simulation models of marine container terminals using Arena. It illustrates the concepts by modelling the Port of Houston's Barbours Cut Container Terminal (BCT) and subsequently discusses how the model can be used to answer one of many operational questions BCT management had ? how many yard cranes are needed to reduce truck turn time to a ...

  • Stevens Systems Enhances Ground Water Remediation Effectiveness

    The Stevens Hydra Probe is now being used to monitor the progress of a new groundwater pollution clean up method called phytoremediation. Phytoremediation is the method by which trees are used to pull contamination out of groundwater. Remediation of contaminated aquifers can take many years to complete. The need for clean, healthy rivers, lakes and streams has stimulated research to develop ...

  • Article: Computer Waste: A Forgotten and Hidden Side to the Global Information Society

    ABSTRACT: Whilst computer technology has radically impacted upon many facets of life, and continues almost relentlessly to do so, for several years questions have been raised about a particularly dark side to such technology, concerning its potential environmental implications where it is disposed of in an uncontrolled manner. This paper looks at the failure to date of the developed ...


  • Tunneling Under Austin, Protecting the Environment, and Preserving the Peace

    ABSTRACTFor over a decade, an existing 42-inch wastewater interceptor has plagued the Austin Water Utility (Utility) with higher than usual maintenance demands. Located in the Walnut Creek flow line, this interceptor is partially exposed with manholes rising several feet above the creek bed due to years of erosion. The interceptor suffers from external erosion and is victim to debris floating ...

  • Pollution of south of Tehran ground waters with heavy metals

    Abstract: The reuse of nutrients and organic matter in wastewater sludge via on agricultural lands application is a desirable goal. However, trace or heavy metals present in sludge pose the risk of human or phytotoxicity from land application. The aim of this research is possibility of ground water pollution of south of Tehran because of ten years irrigation with Ni, Cd and Pb borne waste water. ...

  • Health, Safety and Environmental Risks of Underground Co2 Storage – Overview of Mechanisms and Current

    CO2 capture and storage (CCS) in geological reservoirs may be part of a strategy to reduce global anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Insight in the risks associated with underground CO2 storage is needed to ensure that it can be applied as safe and effective greenhouse mitigation option. This paper aims to give an overview of the current (gaps in) knowledge of risks associated with underground CO2 ...

  • Co-operatives and fair-trade

    Introduction This paper is meant to provide a first insight into an apparently new range of activities of the co-operative movement: fair-trade activities. Some may claim that fair-trade or at least ethical trade is an essential characteristic of the co-operative movement from day one. Still, we could argue that fair-trade as a concept is very much associated with attaining development ...


  • What happened on "The Beach"? Social movements and governance of tourism in Thailand

    Debates about ecotourism are futile without an understanding of how concepts of ecologically acceptable and unacceptable forms of tourism are developed. This paper assesses the case of public opposition to the filming of the Hollywood film, The Beach, in Thailand on grounds that it caused environmental degradation. Evidence suggests that campaigners overstated the film's environmental impact in ...

  • Properties and Behavior of Nonhalogenated VOC`s

    An important consideration when evaluating a remedy is whether the compound is nonhalogenated or halogenated. A nonhalogenated compound is one which does not have a halogen (e.g., fluorine, chlorine, bromine, or iodine) attached to it. The vendor of the technology being evaluated must be informed whether the compounds to be treated are nonhalogenated or halogenated. In most instances, the vendor ...

  • Properties and Behavior of Halogenated VOCs

    An important consideration when evaluating a remedy is whether the compound is halogenated or nonhalogenated. A halogenated compound is one onto which a halogen (e.g., fluorine, chlorine, bromine, or iodine) has been attached. The nature of the halogen bond and the halogen itself can significantly affect performance of a technology or require more extensive treatment than for nonhalogenated ...

  • Development of a Combination Inclinometer-Deflectometer and ADAAS

    A newly developed transverse deformation gage, called the combination inclinometer-deflectometer, and special features of its automated data acquisition and analysis system (ADAAS) are described. The hybrid, two-in-one instrument and the ADAAS contribute to the enhancement of accuracy, reliability, and precision of ground movement ...
